to go until the elections, we're taking an in-depth look this morning at the effect latinos could have on election dame you know that saying there's power in numbers? well, latinos have exactly that. according to the latest census, there are more than 50 million latinos in the u.s., and of those, more than 12.2 million are expected to show up at the polls on election day. that is just over half of latinos who are eligible to vote. joining me now, as they do every week at this time, cnn contributor maria cardona and amy holmes, anchor of "the real ne" on the blaze. good morning to both of you. maria, how critical is the latino vote in swing states like florida, for example? >> it's very critical, randi, and especially in this close election. we saw already the latino vote being decisive. in 2008, president obama would not have been able to turn florida, new mexico, colorado, nevada, would not have been able to turn those blue and win the election had it not been for the latino vote. in 2010, latinos basically saved democrats from losing the senate, and harry reid says this all the time.

are missing is the latino vote. and i think that we need to add at least three to four percentage points to president obama's numbers nationally, and especially in the swing states in the southwest because they are not gathering the strength of the latino vote out there. >> we're going to talk a little bit more about that in a moment, because you're right about that. amy holmes, pick a state for me first. >> i've got to agree with maria that ohio is the state. it's the conventional wisdom, no republican president has won the presidency without ohio. i'll be honest with you, your producers asked me to look at the electoral map last night. i watch bbc detective shows, like a lot of americans. i think we're looking at this race nationally and we're looking at national trends. i think it's very telling that the president of the united states was the first sitting president to cast his vote early in person. i think that president obama is looking at his own numbers and is seeing that the tide is shifting against him and a very big part of the president's strategy is to get that early voting o

're talking about african-americans, latinos, students. but also in the mix are military veterans. millions of seniors. people who are living in poverty. and again, this is a very egregious action by republican legislatures around the country to really keep democratic constituencies from voting. let's look no further than the head of the republican legislature in pennsylvania who basically said that enacting the voters i.d. law in pennsylvania would make sure that mitt romney wins that state. so we have to be vigilant. we have to make sure that voters know the changes in these laws and make sure that they have everything they need in order to go out to vote. >> what do you think? >> pennsylvania is a great example. unfortunately, there's a lot of confusion. earlier this month, a pennsylvania judge ruled that the voter i.d. law provisions would not be in effect for this year because the pennsylvania supreme court said that the law could not the used to disenfranchise any voters. and so there was a judge who said well,wait a second, that means that we can't actually implement this just yet be
